Posh Inland Barge Party Boats

For some reason I seem to stumble upon a lot of inland party boats the last few weeks, some of them are just regular but a few of them are just pretty awfull. I have no idea why they are coming out of the closet now in these “hard times” but they are, maybe because people wanna party their worries away? Anyway: here are a few that better should have stayed in said closet so not to upset us more with their presence.

Pure Liner 1 & 2

Below you don’t see 2 sets of shots of the same ship but 2 sets of pictures of different but identical looking ships partying away on the inland waterways of the Netherlands, Germany & Belgium, Owned by a company called Pure-liner they are used for product presentations, conferences and company-parties. You have guessed it right if you say that the paintjob looks like the dazzle-paint schemes used in WW1, it is and it is truly mesmerizing & awful at the same time. I wished they used better camouflage for these floating bars.

Supperclub Cruise

Supperclub, a well known name in the partying circuit, always good for a pleasant evening and only available in certain cities all over the world. And now also in floating form as the Supperclub Cruise. This booze & relax palace is also operating on the inland waters of the Netherlands and takes a night out totally in the wrong direction. unfortunately they decided to give this old harbourtourboat a horrible color but at the same time it is a nice camouflage so you can’t see it in the dark…..but probably hear it much better!

Ocean Diva

Another company of the same breed is the Ocean Diva, very inappropriately names as her ships probably never will see the ocean, They have 2 vessels: the Ocean Diva and the Ocean Dice Futura….both better not seen in the harsh daylight or when sober.

And last but not least the Queen of all Party Ships:


Her names means Queen of the sun but I think the sun is prepared to dive under the horizon if possible to avoid radiating warmth and light onto this floating disaster of a partycenter. I think the architecture is quit bold and modern but unfortunately it doesn’t suit a vessel, this better had been a high-profile office of a worldwide operating company which turned out to be a big scam and false forefront of a raving lunatic who wants to conquer the world the hard way. A regular 007-movie type mogul or so……

    there is a famous picture of the HMS Argus (Britain’s first aircraft carrier nicknamed the flatiron) that shows her at Scapa Flow with a battlecruiser in dazzle camouflage. The Pure Liner 2 is the reincarnation of her!
